welcome back to live from moscow on the latest news now in the week's top stories on r.t. bloodstained. with allegations colonel gadhafi was executed by the interim government. breaking point this week and clashes erupted in greece as people waited with more sturdy measures and leaders up against the clock a meeting to try and resolve the ongoing. battle over barricades nato forces failed to remove roadblocks the disputed kosovo border ethnic. blockade to stop the peacekeepers advance. and historic much a russian soyuz rocket said software french space space in the tropics. first satellite navigation system. my colleague bill daughter's her health now is time
but for now the second part of our special report on the use of nuclear weapons in the modern age and the responsibility that science and research have towards our future safety is what's in there when people started digging in deeper and deeper they discovered. a lot of things had been lax all of the security front i can go through regurgitation here to access t three in my ford ranger truck and i will not be stopped i will well you briefly stop you get waved through there's no search of those vehicles. hundreds of pounds plasty in my vehicle and once in three i can pretty much anywhere i want.
they were still in approach to stuff they. were practiced with this week and the rug right now nevermore is putting together a new found three in the p. tony building that very building where the mock terrorists were able to get out south and they're going to be experimenting with boring that one tony arm and we're . trying to develop robotic story production line for a full scale manufacturing capability out once alamos to make the plutonium yes the n.s.a. is requiring the los alamos laboratory to ramp up the production from tony and it's sort of a compound and functional bar they were very proud of having produced i was a ten or eleven last year or something and they want to produce something like eighty
per year and you could ask why it's about pork and their weapons are just a nice way to get pork they're nice because nobody can force them to doing any unless they don't have a security clearance and you can't grow up and say show me how you make your simple pits because they want to see the people that run. you know they're the friends and histories in this country better they are connected to people in washington than are you know that just. do you have a power of control and over agency policy that cannot really be altered even by the president why we need more nucular weapons or even to maintain the current stockpile that we have and spend the resources of the money on that is beyond me i think those are political decisions and i don't think they are well thought out.
the problems address to the nation problem is office in the white house january seventh nineteen sixty one. good evening my fellow americans. three and a half million men and women are directly engage in the defense stocks. we only spend on military security alone more than a net income of all the united states corporation. we have been compelled to create a permanent arminians industry a batch of bush going to councils of government we must guard against the acquisition of unwanted influence whether sought or and sought by the military
industrial complex. the more classic version of the military industrial complex which is still very much a part. of the united states military an economy that is refers more to the meshing industrial conglomerates corporations with the us military. and this serves as some people as they deserve the kind of the facto centralized state planning of the u.s. economy whereby industrial policy is determined by the defense department in the allocation of their you know several hundred billion dollars budget every year or so long term decisions about where whole industries go in the united states is determined by the defense department using illusion that the united states and other western societies are markets and it's based on free enterprise and someone
that's only marginally true this need take a look at people who are going to it's based on the states or the pentagon controls about five hundred billion dollars of funding a year and it uses that to control all of high technology industry the costs of the initial stages of technological development are all subsidized by the taxpayers through the system because the pentagon is publicly funded institution obviously you know half the federal budget now it was devoted to things that are either military where intelligence or homeland security and all those bureaucracies feed a lot of contractors and people making large amounts of money and why would they want to stop why would they not want to feed trough anymore the
british historian. once said that it was misleading to say that the soviet union in the united states had military industrial complexes and said it was more accurate to say that they were military industrial complex and. in the us casey could just as well have said in the terry industrial like agenda given the role of the university of california where you see. a very important work with and the military industrial complex some go as far as calling it the military industrial exam that contracts you see became involved you know general context of universities becoming more tightly involved in motor bus ruffles during world war two the people who ran harvard the people who ran out. the people ramberg really. all of these people were basically. realizing that it was in their interest to. simulate touch themselves in more permanent ways to the military
the u.c. has received billions of dollars over the years from the federal government put it into the nuclear weapons development let's hop on that these laboratories and basically serve as the ultimate flight crew that legitimates nuclear weapons in the united states now this is interesting the scientists at the laboratories. benefit from the university of california man if you look in the sense that the university of california provides a frankly of academic respectability for their design of weapons of mass destruction the. labs don't like to say to your nuclear bomb site labs we treat their knowledge of armageddon and that's not how they sell themselves way they sell themselves they serve it we are all type purpose national science
stuff which was we work on everything from the human genome project to helping to offset global warming to all kinds of other benign popular and the science and we also did. the russians. so. universally is basically doing science it so happens that eighty percent of the research in funding. that the department of energy provides them with is for their weapons programs. the weapons laboratories are incredibly powerful lobby interests on behalf of nuclear weapons development and i look at that phenomenon as being part of something that the generalist loss for the us munford called the new pentagon of
power that emerged around the time of world war two and there he recognized there was a new priesthood. within the ruling elite of the united states that the priesthood was scientists elite scientists like nuclear weapons scientists especially the labs come up with ideas and sell them to the military there's a kind of idea that the customer you know wants this the customer wants that at the cost of military but historically it's the labs that have by and large come up with the ideas and then they get the customer to be interested in your you are you're in a position where you're the only people would have the nuclear weapons design expertise you can deal with do you. about what you consider the nuclear you can speculate about the russians and their nuclear weapons that was right so
you're in your literacy and you're controlling your own money supply is pretty nice you don't have absolute control or go to hell or control war with them you ought to have it would be really hard to overestimate the historical influence that a us nuclear scientists have had on the global proliferation of nuclear weapons you see scientists have been some of the most outspoken advocates of the nuclear weapons program. a very key moment arrived during president reagan's administration when president reagan was on his way to a summit with the soviet premier of course a chap to discuss a comprehensive limitation of nuclear weapons by those two states and by them. and hey do you see nuclear weapon scientists and would. successfully lobbied president reagan and convince president reagan not to jesus edward teller you see scientist
said we need to continue and in fact expand the nuclear weapons program. and what color they are trying to say later from committing to that there was no possibility of killing more than if we put it in the quarter. bucket and the year later here sell them to consume the possibility which remains the destroying all advanced life on earth if you think crazy nuclear weapons policies it isn't that they're doing that they are the while service to the deal with the g.o.p. and they're simply making nuclear weapons which is what they claim we're the oil service they are making christmas. because it keeps nuclear weapons for as being right these are precious you mustn't stop using these things because if you. you budget we're going to. eat lions jr also it was like you see it will eat worked at senator domenici office for many years.
function as his laboratory legislative aide. but actually it was a university of california lawyer lobbyist. working as a staff in a powerful senators are. so pete lines drop more. are the entire resources of volatile cells that are on the other labs and then feed it to community from within his office. so a lot of top. rate now you've got some people whose purpose whose whose sole centered interest is to maintain. nuclear weapons as a viable option. that is their own selfish interest even though you and i would say that if there's if there's any weapon on earth right now that puts her star society or risk it's nuclear weapons because they can bring our six sided crashing down for
more at the end of the cold war there was a hope that at least a corporate of fleet nuclear threats would be reduced eliminated namely soviet america confrontation with a very dissolution of the soviet union u.s. leaders saw an opportunity not to change the world in the direction of nuclear abolition which they could and which you know many americans saw that as a possibility unfettered doing that they thought the possibility of being a hedge a monic world empire such as the world had never seen. issue of nuclear weapons is kind of dropped off public radar a lot of ways because the u.s. population doesn't feel as threatened by nuclear weapons and more people thought the nuclear problem danger had. disappear that was form a problem the nuclear war was never
a deliberate attack by either side against the other and it was never entirely the fault of the follows through war. the problem of an accidental war launched by a false alarm and alert forces still does exist. if you look over the history there have been. very close calls just by accident we don't have the russian records but we have the us for a lot of us record and its performance i mean there's been a significant change but it seems it's not hundreds of cases where automated response systems were on the verge of launching a missile strike. when human intervention prevented and human intervention missions like a minute or two of. these things are great at the edges destroying world and i happen to not by accident or by computer error or by half or by an ordinary fallible human
might by merit has five not thousand eight hundred fifty. and russia cut tryna have thousand and when you think about the fact there are two hundred forty major cities in the northern hemisphere to such a time you see there are forty eight spots targeted on your car as we speak and indeed if you look at the situation in a world that's very gray maybe the danger is. more sun now you know emanuel others in this. theologists you. are in a lot of globalization he said that you think that on you know on the next twenty years there will be twenty new nuclear states. you feed into the cold war that actually an opening up for mass deliberations nuclear weapons nuclear material and expertise has to come dispersed in the world so widely by. at this point the we are i think on the verge of widespread proliferation of the belief that clean threat of
nuclear worms the stream of seriousness standard among the leading strategic and last picks a robert mcnamara former secretary of defense. going to the arms of some he thinks his estimate is that it's not only the threat who are some women because of the apocalypse any international rate can't situation and. face up a situation where the weapons will be enormous. there's going to be more nations going for nuclear weapons especially because any nice states and russia still have them and so use them. to try to. try to intimidate smaller nations. and more during the world right now running around the world. and we're threatening people with records that we have in the door. to open fire and helicopters and shoot precision missiles of people occur it's. the only balance it
comes into that is when they all sort of public workers are you also are reduced to only having a rifle once you're reduced to people weaponry then you really do talk. probably there's just great fun killing people. here we are in the position of trying to urge the most of the countries of the world except for nine. not to have a single nuclear weapon. while we're only telling them we intend to keep thousands indefinitely them and that we will not assure them we will not use them against them going to for making a threat. the way the united states particularly is behaving it is providing incentives to other countries to develop nukes. look at the case of iraq united states have accused iraq of having nuclear arms an attack dog the didn't have nuclear arms and surely the united states knew that you wouldn't attack
it if it did have nuclear arms but on the other hand north korea actually developed nuclear arms and the united states negotiated for the demonstration to the world is that adding the nuclear weapons thanks to a lot thing for from us for it's for the kids and for all the travel time. what is the united states really number one. one challenge. where nobody can come close to our level of dominance our love. for the growing oil production. human capital with only one thing. and that is the. problems are left to the insiders and the insiders on the whole are committed to the u.s. empire. and to run the world. they want nuclear threats and
so long as leaders in the u.s. are committed to the use of nuclear weapons the rest of the world is going to keep theirs or get their. and the prospects for human survival are not great. and others i've been using in the surging of this university of forty three years. but i believe there is omission a would be a more of the u.c. system and it's all i want is the idea whether there's very little likelihood. i think it's absolutely wrong for any university to be involved in making weapons of mass destruction weapons that are illegal under international law and weapons that by any definition of morality are immoral weapons that
kill indiscriminately weapons that could destroy civilization ok guys serious stuff think about our participation in their liberation of dead lend-lease and how the best source is chance of survival universal from. pressing forward and. is full of understanding and doing it to them because the puppets are worth pursuing. they should not be doing it because of external institutional pressures of citizens and these are the results we want. so they should not be more at the bidding of the state or of corporations or any other group and so it is from. investigating with frontiers of understanding from groups. and with for full attention to transpose they're worth. i know people are for who you know lines like
counselors and. the war prior to working out but for the sake of the nation sick of such a move. listen it's not my role to dress that befits a month removed from her since. her return from him and her right back to all the things we really choose the germans of nuremberg. were all saying this is not my role for the rest of time and money instruments and destruction she said he needed to hear me and he didn't hear that we're holding him through here in the. us today you're all testimony those survivors from the future as you know all of us thought this is me on the young and you're going to get. better so you don't get
a lot easier no i am happy that so they're also yours so yours so there's no looking you are. just another many started. to who are. battling mass hysteria he knew it was going to come in oh i think you're on the top of the must. a university and need to cultivate. it all to find humanity and that here. is a. if you have to buy a right. right. here wife. oh my chance to create people are going to think that making up a good bond that will happen. right is lawyers are steve martin is
a foreigner destroying your rights groups and guns the truth of who you are going to sell the fact to who. were doing these things. with no concern and so with them uses of god or that. it's. a serious ethical or moral issue. and i think it's one of the most and morrow and ethical institutions in the country. they want more investment they want more money thrown down the black hole nuclear weapons development they want to expand nuclear weapon labs they want to continue the program and even advocates of this since the very beginning of this program and so it's up to us it's up to us those of us who have a conscience and who are watchdogs to stand up and say no because if we don't do it no one will.
the syrians are meeting next thursday and seven says go yeah we're going to cheer on my. side. we really care and we're going to put our necks. and tell people that we need to be just me to monetise and we need to start building their weapons. the students have a right to demand that person stop indorsing. we don't warm don't. need to this feel far more people with for us. because there's so much to be out. there already. a group of protesters interrupted
a university of california border regions meeting to demand the school's severed ties with the nation's nuclear weapons program it's time that my principals or wrongness various terrorist see and only the first step to be blamed for that is a lie or a holocaust if you're if you are. or why. i was there. i know i've. i've. i've i. think any person. with a mission. you
